Australia: Meriton Serviced Apartments (MSA) has installed the ECOSYSTEM wireless occupancy based energy management system in 178 apartments in Sydney.
MSA operates more than 3,200 units in 13
properties across Australia's east coast. It has installed the
ECOSYSTEM product at its MSA Pitt Street property in Sydney's
Central Business District.
ECOSYSTEM is a part of the suite of energy retrofit solutions offered by Delaware start-up Efficiency Grid LLC. It says that MSA installed the system after seeing a reduction of more than 60 per cent in apartment unit kWh usage during winter testing.
The project was managed by Efficiency Grid's Australian service provider, Smart Hotel Solutions (SHS). Doron Danon, SHS's managing director, said: "We were impressed with the ECOSYSTEM solution as these are large apartments and retrofitted during very high building occupancy. This initiative by MSA will result in a saving of close to 700,000kWh of energy annually."
Efficiency Grid founder Phillip Kopp said: "It's great to get into the Australian serviced apartment segment as there is a tremendous amount of energy saving potential there. We were very pleased with the work done by Smart Hotel Solutions."
